-Complex of 3 adjacent buildings with 16 floors (Main, 13 residential, services, mechanical) The original modern facade projected on 1957 was covered with marcolite panels, was totally replaced on the remodeling of 1980, a couple years later was reinforced into their foundations but was damaged on 85's earthquakes, on 1989 was reinforced for stabilization purposes with big new columns, now have 15 floors (service level was demolished).
